Fenwick User Page[edit]

Hi DragonflySixtyseven. I noticed that you have patrolled and deleted my page. Please can you be more specific as to the inappropriate use? Can you please also explain to me, why my article - which was not even published got removed? The page was only in "sandbox" mode and not officially published yet. I thought this was the whole idea of the sandbox mode - to correct things before they are published. Please correct me if I am mistaken. Thanks. mcflyza (talk) 14:55, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi. Thanks for the feedback and explanation. I was just reading up again on the section of notability and I can say that for the previous page I created in 2014, I indeed attempted to show notability, by supplying references to the website on which the newspaper article had been published, yet that did not seem to be sufficient evidence, so it is a little confusing as to what is "sufficient enough" to be considered notable. The irony is that I could point out to you other companies in the same business line that have successfully published a wiki article similar to the ones I attempted to post - but that's not what I am here for, because if you patrol them, it will be my fault. Unfair, I know, but their good luck I suppose. Thanks.

"Why can't I have a substandard page? Those other substandard pages misled me into thinking your standards were lower!" "Oops, you're right! Tell us where those substandard pages are, and we'll remove them!" "NOOOO! DON'T REMOVE THEM! IF YOU REMOVE THEM, IT'LL BE MY FAULT!!!!" How can we show that our standards are higher if people like you don't let us know where the substandard stuff is? DS (talk) 14:00, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
Please don't misunderstand me. I never, at any time said those other page were substandard. I said that I have come across pages like mine, which seem to be low on "notability". I asked for a little feedback, such as what is considered sufficient enough feedback, but did not get any. For example, the reference originally came from an external source (a newspaper article), but published on the company website, for some reason was not considered sufficient enough. I'm trying to understand what is acceptable and sufficient enough to sustain a page on Wiki, because even referencing an external article doesn't seem to be sufficient. There is no reason to get sarcastic or hostile.

Jean-Toussaint Merle[edit]

Hi DragonflySixtyseven,

And thank you for having taken the time to review this newly created article of mine. Just, I was wondering: like all the articles I create on the en Wiki, this one is a direct translation from the French original and nobody ever corrects the mistakes that are included in the text (style, syntax, vocabulary etc.). Maybe they are flawless after all but this I can't believe. Is there a policy on this version of Wikipedia to be very lax and tolerant re. the articles created by non-native English speakers?

Dulce et decorum est/Pro patria Casey. (Irrelevant friendliness, no fear!)[edit]

Random editor here who has been trying to look at userpages of frequently appearing Wikipedia cast members during a recent spate of dull conference calls, and I have to comment that, as a nearly-45-year-old who, since about the 15th year of said terrestrial tenure, has felt that being able to rattle off memorized poems was a party trick worth having, you invoked in a remarkably economical number of words two of the first of said "party tricks" that ever entered my repertoire before I was even of driving age. Yay, DragonflySixtyseven! (I am so sad for the loss of your loved one and have no better words for that apart from another deeply loved "party trick," Frost's "Fire and Ice," which doesn't fit but it's what I can do at the moment.) If you don't know Wallace Stevens' "Anecdote of the Jar", it is my current favorite, maybe just 'coz my late dad was from Tennessee, whether or not he ever placed a jar upon a hill there. My very best. - Julietdeltalima (talk) 00:08, 18 May 2016 (UTC)

Freedom Scientific (part II)[edit]

Hello, just a heads up re this conversation, the article's been re-created by Patricktimony (who I've met personally in Washington). At least the new version has outside sorces; I've tweaked it a bit and made the older versions available to non-admins, but I feel too close to the subject to do much else.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Sex and/or Mr. Morrison, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Extraterrestrial (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

my apologies if i am posting this in error in attempt to write back on your edit reversion

appreciate your comments on the edit to the freemartin/twin female calf page. will edit that to try and produce a coherent statement

"a subjective assessment is that frequently the hair at the ventral tip of the vulva forms a tuft in a freemartin heifer."

perhaps " frequently freemartin heifers have at the tip of ventral tip of their vulva a tuft of hair which is distinctive in these individuals, albeit a subjective assessment"

i write this because i am a veterinary surgeon specializing in cattle reproduction and see these cases often in practice, as well as the literature on them. thank you. jh - vmd — Preceding unsigned comment added by Acornembryo (talkcontribs) 00:10, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

fully protected template[edit]

Hi! I've been going through fully-protected templates to see if they may be good candidates to request a lower protection level to allow template editors to edit them. I noticed you fully-protected Template:Whydidyoudothat a while back as a "private" template. The template namespace is usually collaborative, similar to the mainspace. Would you consider moving this page into your userspace? You would still be able to link to it and substitute it just like normal. If you moved it to User:DragonflySixtyseven/Whydidyoudothat, then you could type {{subst:User:DragonflySixtyseven/Whydidyoudothat}} to substitute it on any page. ~ RobTalk 21:42, 3 June 2016 (UTC) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Thank you for reviewing my draft of "Leatrice Rose", DragonflySixtyseven. I would like to upload a photo of a painting by this artist.

I am related to the artist. My article will be objective and referenced. Jayne3 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jayne3 (talkcontribs) 17:18, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

NPP / AfC[edit]

Hi. Just a reminder that in just over a week at Wikimania there's going to be a cross-Wiki discussion about the systems of control of new pages. This is a round-table rather than a presentation or a lecture. On the agenda are reforms to the new article reviewing systems and ways to help new users better understand our content policies.

DYK for Loon (monkey)[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 27 June 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Loon (monkey), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that diabetic children were sent to visit Loon, a drill at the San Diego Zoo, to help them overcome their aversion to needle injections? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Loon (monkey). You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Loon (monkey)), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Cassandra Parkin[edit]

I was shocked to discover that you simply deleted my page on Cassandra Parkin without even giving me any warning. I only realised what happened when I saw that a link to it on my user page led nowhere. Is this standard Wikipedia conduct? Though I'm sure you had good reason, briefly given as "notability not asserted", I worked hard on that page, so to see it tossed in the bin without having been allowed to plead its case, or even be aware that it was due for deletion, stuns me. It was not an offensive or irrelevant page, so I'm not sure why I've been treated so disdainfully here. Is there no way that my work can be restored, should I make a good enough case for its notability? --JackHeslop91 (talk) 09:15, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)Admins do have the authority to delete pages on sight in accordance with our speedy deletion policy. In this case, it looks like the page would fall under A7 since it arguably doesn't make a credible claim of significance. Internet fame for one review and publishing works that get reviews is run of the mill for many non-notable authors. The only thing that looks like it could be a claim of notability is the Scott Prize, but based on a Google News search, it does not seem to be a prize that gets much coverage, so the deletion is definitely not out of process. You can always start a userspace draft and demonstrate with reliable sources (i.e. not the self-published references from the author's own website + Amazon present in the original article) that the author would be notability as a way to potentially get it restored into mainspace eventually, or, depending on Dragonfly's response here, possibly take it to deletion review if (and only if) and agreement here is not reached.---- Patar knight - chat/contributions 14:49, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for explaining the policy to me. I'm still surprised I wasn't at the very least even told my page had been deleted. Is there any record of what I wrote so I can at least keep a hold of my work, should I wish to contest the deletion of the page and possibly have it restored? --JackHeslop91 (talk) 19:35, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Admin work with respect to user page review[edit]

Hi DragonflySixtyseven,

I got a notification of a user page review and got an explanation through the link on the header for editing pages.

The link to Template:Whydidyoudothat is broken and there is another link leading to User:DragonflySixtyseven/Whydidyoudothat.

You are probably aware of this.

Anyway, is there a means of marking a user page in such a way as to make your work easier? Please let me know.

If it doesn't exist already, some page having a stream of recommendations, policies and changes might be useful.

Kind regards,

--JamesPoulson (talk) 20:33, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Deletion of WP user, and his/her articles[edit]

Hi DragoflySixtyseven, I have been taken aback by the removal of a large number of articles made by User:Beetstraw. What the grounds for the user's blocking is, it seems to be sockpuppetting. However, I wonder what the reason is for removing their articles, as far as I could see they have full validity, they are good, and abiding by the article editing rules. Now that is a matter of concern for us, since the removal affects negatively a tournament taking place in the WP. Regards Iñaki LL (talk) 10:33, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Sorry, User:Iñaki LL, but while there can be good reasons to keep content created by the sock of a longterm sockmaster, someone blocked for "systematic abuse of non-free content policy", a tournament is not one of them. Drmies (talk) 17:53, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
@DragonflySixtyseven:Good morning, I am bringing the comment from my user page. The removal of articles has sometimes entailed the removal of legitimate information, and rightful editors, such as this. I do not have access to the articles, but there may be more. Can you please reinstate it? Iñaki LL (talk) 07:53, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Iñaki LL: the articles, as much as the reason why they were created, stand as a trophy for this block evading and sockpuppeting editor. I strongly advice that these articles stay deleted, and at most independently recreated by other users writing their own content. --Dirk Beetstra T C 12:13, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
What? Did you ever read what I wrote? I have not stalked anyone, I started this section for legitimate reasons, and I kindly request this administrator to restore removal of content added / article created by an another editor, as he suggested. Thanks Iñaki LL (talk) 12:34, 16 July 2016S (UTC)
Yes, you started this for legitimate reasons, and I am not accusing you of stalking, I am the stalker here (click the link).
Your request is fine, but I strongly suggest not to restore the material, per WP:RBI and WP:DENY. Not only his score in the tournament, but also the content/articles that this editor has written are a trophy for them. That content is created in violation of our policies and guidelines. Did you see wat Drmies wrote? --Dirk Beetstra T C 12:51, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
Honestly, I think we are talking to cross purposes. I have not reverted anything. Secondly, in the sweepingo removal made, an article created by another editor has been removed, so please restore it. By the way, my petition was to this contributor. Thanks Iñaki LL (talk) 14:42, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
@Iñaki LL:. The way I see it (if you are talking about Hercules fighting Nemean lion, Lyoko%C3%AF created an article on July 9. Beetstraw then created a duplicate article with some different content on the 11th and then wiped the earlier created article on the 12th, overwriting it with a redirect. The later article was deleted (by a checkuser, not DS). Unless you are talking about another article, I don't see content by other editors that was deleted. --Dirk Beetstra T C 16:10, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
Adding to it, by far most of the content was copied straight from an external website. And on none of the pages that Beetstraw created have significant edits by others. --Dirk Beetstra T C 17:04, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
Ok then, thanks. Could Lyoko's initial version be restored by chance? Iñaki LL (talk) 21:02, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
Already done; glad to help. DS (talk) 22:59, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

Mass deletions[edit]

Can you help. I recently came across an article created by Fouetté rond de jambe en tournant which had been deleted. I tried to find out why and the reason given was "mass deletion" which explained what had happened ... but not why. I looked for a reason but I could not find one .... all I could find was the deleted article and other edits by other users (including me) which had also been deleted. I decided to reverse the deletion, but I wasn't happy that I had acted wisely only efficiently. I now see a new mass deletion where the reason is "mass deletion". Can you explain how I can find the reason for mass deletions? I have seen one reason given as "use of multiple accounts" but this may not effect the quality of articles at all. Thanks for your time. Victuallers (talk) 19:26, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Victuallers: creations, sometimes with wholesale copying of external texts and creating duplicate articles by socks of a blocked editor. The editor sees their creations, and prizes in competitions that they win with it as trophies. See WP:RBI and WP:DENY]]. I would suggest to keep the edits deleted, except if there are significant content contributions from others, and to write the articles from scratch. --Dirk Beetstra T C 19:57, 16 July 2016 (UTC) Victuallers (reping). --Dirk Beetstra T C 19:58, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
I think for the page in question, there is significant work by others. --Dirk Beetstra T C 20:04, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
A lot of these have been restored and there appears to be no evidence in the articles of why we/wiki might want them deleted. I think this mass deletion has caused Wikipedia to lose a lot of good conduct. I still cannot work out why you/we deleted the work. This is like burning the books of authors whose life styles are out of fashion. Can you please ensure that there is a link back to the reason why mass deletions are taking place in future. "Part of mass deletion" is not a reason. Other editors and admins want to know that articles are not being deleted as a punishment ...... as this is against the prime directive. Can you undelete these en masses as it is consuming a lot of time to do one by one? 16:13, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Steven Universe[edit]

Hi, can you please change the Steven Universe List of Episodes page to my version please, which is the correct version? You locked it on the incorrect one. Thanks, Minecraft69 (talk) 22:43, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

@Minecraft69: No, in fact it is not, as I explained on the talk page. See also WP:THEWRONGVERSION. Protection is not an endorsement of either version. nyuszika7h (talk) 22:47, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
@Nyuszika7H: Almost every show out there has shorts, and none of them count them as an actual episode. They only count as a production code (1031-058), and by that logic the shorts should be 58 and ALL numbers after 58 should be changed. It's definitely not episode 79 though. Also remember that the staff work by production code, not aired episode number. Also, the episode numbers are the airing numbers, and the shorts never aired on TV, they're only internet shorts. Minecraft69 (talk) 22:53, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
@Minecraft69: Discuss that on the talk page, then. No administrator is going to revert to your preferred version without consensus. ~ Rob13Talk 01:39, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Wait. DS67 locked in on the wrong one? ADMINABUSE. NeilN, I need you to get on it right now: full protection, restore the good version, block the wrong editor (I mean the one who was wrong, not the other one--they get a barnstar), and drag the admin off to ArbCom. This is an outrage. Drmies (talk) 15:13, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
    • Drmies, you laugh, but... [1] --NeilN talk to me 15:19, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
      • You know, I was wondering the same thing myself--looking at these editors and seeing that none of them were blocked. But I think I get it: first, there's nothing more to be gained from a block. Second, it's so ridiculous that any continuation (as you noted on one of their talk pages) will result in a serious block. Third, blocking them will not solve the Real Life Problem of whether it was 79 or 80. As you may know, I'm always itching to block someone, anyone--though not as much as AlexTheWhovian--and I can feel that itch here too, two days after, but I can't fault DS67. I do understand, however, the desire to hear from them. Typically if I choose protection over a block I follow up with my Come To Jesus speech. It rarely works, but I feel it's traditional. Drmies (talk) 15:24, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
      • Also, I like laughing. That was a ridiculous edit war. It's Monday. I have to go and teach in a minute. I'm still fat and old, and I need new glasses but can't afford them. I better be laughing. Drmies (talk) 15:25, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

@Bassplr19: After I asked the above question DF67 responded on my talk page. The ensuing discussion is here in my talk page archive. As I understand it, DF67 wanted to see sources other than from NEMA itself to establish notability. Jeh (talk) 17:42, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Review of material in sandboxes?[edit]

Hi... Just got a notice that you reviewed material on several of my sandbox pages. As I am new to their use I'd like to understand why. I thought sandboxes were private scratch space... I didn't think I'd have to work about an admin taking a look at what I had in process or notes I was making to myself. Clearly I was mistaken! Can you give me some info on the reality of this?

Another cup of coffee for you![edit]

Vox Day[edit]

DragonflySixtyseven: Please see the discussion on this addition here: User talk:David Gerard and respond on the article's talk page so I don't have to go through this again. I don't think you can call Chaos Horizon just a random blog. Kempner is quite the math geek and does quite good analyses. If you can't tolerate his blog as a reference, then I think you should remove the reference to John Scalzi's blog as well. Once you accept one "random" blog into an article, then you've opened the door to others. If I remove Chaos Horizon, then Day's support for The Three Body Problem remains, and the statistics are attached for anyone to do their own analysis. Pkeets (talk) 02:46, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

'The' in title[edit]

'The' is part of the nomenclature of the laws Nagaland Liquor Total Prohibition Act, 1989 and Lakshadweep Prohibition Regulation, 1979 and should have been retained as per Wikipedia:Article titles. KhaasBanda (talk) 06:52, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

Speedy-deletion of National Electrical Manufacturers Association[edit]

You deleted it by CSD#A7, but it said "publishes more than 600 standards, application guides, white papers, and technical papers". I'm not sure that is actual notability, but it seems like an assertion of it. Want to take it to AFD? DMacks (talk) 13:12, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

Waterboyy (2015 Thai movie)[edit]

Hi DragonflySixtyseven

Noticed that the page that i helped created and edited has been deleted, i hope that you could help to re-instate the page back, as this is a Thai movie, and from time to time, i will be doing some editing for the page. Hope to hear good news from youEvan Weinstein | Talk 15:36, 12 September 2016 (UTC)


First of all, let me start off by saying I've known about you for years, and am glad to see you're one of the few good editors and admins from 10 years ago who is somehow still here. That said, I'm a little concerned about your deletion of Waterboyy. Deleted because "notability not asserted." Problem is, films aren't really covered under that in Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion. The article was a bit of a mess- I didn't write it, it did not appear to be written by someone whose first language is English. That said, there is WP:BIAS to consider. It follows there wouldn't be a lot of sources on the film in English, but it does appear to have made news- [2] WP:AFD would have been appropriate it you felt it were not notable. Ribbet32 (talk) 03:43, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

It's not a question of whether it's notable, it's a question of whether the article said anything to assert notability, which it didn't. Show me a list of sources (not a link to Google) and I'll restore it into your userspace. DS (talk) 11:40, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
That's Google News, not just Google. Ribbet32 (talk) 13:38, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
Still a link to Google. Show me the actual news coverage. Doesn't have to be English as long as it fits through Google Translate or similar. DS (talk) 14:32, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
I question your handling of this whole issue, including the misuse of WP:CSD and why you wouldn't bother with AfD or WP:PROD, but:

Ribbet32 (talk) 14:58, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Good enough; I've restored it and moved it into your userspace, where I expect you will integrate content from those news sources before moving it back into mainspace! DS (talk) 15:03, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
New title is Water Boyy. Undelete talk page. Ribbet32 (talk) 23:50, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, DragonflySixtyseven. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:47, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

I got a notification about you having reviewed my (Jonteemil) user page. I got to ask what that means, because I have no clue. If you reply, and I hope you do, please tag my name so I get noficated about it. Thank you.Jonteemil (talk) 18:50, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

Deletion of "Center for European Policy Analysis" page[edit]


I noticed that you deleted the Center for European Policy Analysis page due to lack of sources:

I would like to request that you undelete this page so I can add citations and update old information.

Many thanks!

Honestly, you'll need to start a draft with actual non-CEPA sources. We can't have just what CEPA says about itself. Once you have that, I'll restore the old content for you. DS (talk) 15:20, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

Have been looking at your conversation on the chat channel. You have been very helpful directly coaching a user on Wikipedia policy and walking the user through the renaming process. Kudos to you! Optakeover(U)(T)(C) 18:00, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Recreated page[edit]

Can you keep an eye on this one? I am not sure about its notability. The recreator deletes the tags. Staszek Lem (talk) 19:16, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
